I broke my neck in a car accident and was seen by him in the ER. He waited too long to do sugery the first time and almost severed my spinal cord with the second surgery and I had to have an emergency third surgery to fix the second surgery mistakes. He has no bedside manner and does not care about his patients!!!!
Dr. Bechtel is an arragant,uncaring jerk! He is old and needs to retire. I went in for a consultation and he was rude, condescending and treated me like I was an idiot. I have been in a lot of back pain and he started writing me out a prescription but when I verbalized I didn't want to have my spine fused he immediately stopped and ripped up my pain med prescription. He's truly UNCARING!
